Interesting contrast

A reader sends along this note:

On the one hand, the White House and/or its agencies has no shame in revealing intelligence means and methods so long as it gets to scoop Al-Qaeda in the news:

On the other hand, the Supreme Court will refuse to accept a case of torture and abuse because it would cause the government to reveal its secret means and methods of intelligence collecting:


So, if it makes us look good, we can throw away a year's worth of work, but if it makes us look bad then we will not reveal the systematic violations of law. Awesome.
